Screener Squad: The Plot Against America

The Plot Against America Miniseries Review


Acclaimed showrunner David Simon & his writing partner Ed Burns (The Wire) bring to life Philip Roth’s vision of alternate 1940’s America where Charles Lindbergh is elected president and the nation takes a big move towards fascism all told through the eyes of a Jewish family. Nathan, Rose, and Davey see whether this nightmarish work of speculative fiction is worthy of Simon’s other works or if you should keep this miniseries way down in the hole… of your Quarantine watch list.


CREATED BY: David Simon and Ed Burns based on the novel by Phillip Roth

STARRING: Winona Ryder, Anthony Boyle, Zoe Kazan, Morgan Spector, Michael Kostroff, David Krumholtz, Azhy Robertson, Caleb Malis, Jacob Laval, John Turturro
